Iv been searching on how many chain links I would need for a 70 inch wheel base on my 08 zx10 and I have a range from around 152 to 165 links. Im currently running 16/44 Gearing on 525 pitch. I would like to keep it 525 and also stay with ek zzz. or equivalent chain. Anyone have any experience with 70 in wheelbase zx10s and know exactly how many links will be needed to achieve this on my Gen 3. I really dont want to put 2 master links in the chain, I would prefer to buy a longer chain and cut to size.
Thanks for any input!:eek:ccasion1

I believe it should be around 170 or so. I run a 525 zzz chain on mine at 68 but I didn't count the links. I run 2 masterlinks without a problem
